People these days... Goodness. Hope not too many people were hurt.

That's only 20 miles north of my campus as well.

I want to be clear though, I am not into the conspiracies. However at some point and with a little common sense, something just seems very odd about all these shootings.

Since all this gun control talk started, there has been almost a big time shooting per week/month. It's also always at schools and other places where a lot of people could be.

Media and the speed of communication.

Violent crimes in the US are at a 50 year low.

So they are still searching for a African American male 18-20. Only 6-7 shots fired in a hallway between the libray and administration building.

Please do not start fights in this thread, this is a very serious situation. I'm going to have a lot to talk about in my criminal justice class Wednesday.

it seems to be between just two people Its awful but I mean kids die all the time in city's from missed shots and I feel that doesn't get much attention . it doesnt seem to be a planned school shooting and at least no one died.

There was more stuff in the video that was not mentioned in the article. It does make you think, but it doesnt mean that i believe every word of it.

The problem is that a lot of those theories are half-baked just so they can post them in a video on YouTube as fast as possible. Then they discard the theories days later but they are still in the video.

I agree with that. In the begining it says that there may be more info brought out after the video. I saw it last week or the week before, i cant remember. The article you put was from the 18th i think. So definately there is a lot of info in that article to disprove most of whats on the video.

Another shooting in a gun-free zone. Shocking.

From what i know, it was a fight between two people. They just got the other shooter arrested today. Fled from Houston to Dallas. Nobody died only a few people injured. And I think one the shooters shot himself in the leg. Everything is back to normal at school.

Awesome! The part about a negligent firearm owner shooting himself in the leg.

Do you really think things were never bad before? Like ever? Things like this have always happened and always will.

I saw the title of the thread and the first thing that went through my mind was... "well did you hit it?" Darn flu meds.
